COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the early 1900s, the village of De Panne, close to the French border, was famous for two things -- the Pannepots, or fishing boats, that could be seen along the coast, and the unique dark ale enjoyed by the local fishermen. Our Old Fishermans Ale is a tribute to these hardy sailors and their rich, flavorful brew. Unfiltered. Unpasteurized. Bottle-conditioned in 33cl and 75cl.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Starts malty and strong, sweet. Becomes then much drier, notes of strong coffee and liquorice. Mild finish. Really well done.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 dark fruits abound in both the nose and taste. The aroma in particular is infused with numerous layers to it. Extremely enjoyable.

That1Guy (2223) - Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2008
Crushed with Jakebra. Dark fruit aroma. intense mother flavor, maybe even a hint of metallic flavor in there? Complex and overwhemling. Badass.

Travlr (23612) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 Dark brown with medium white head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and nuts. Malty and well-balanced, with hops and spice. Good complexity. A winner!

pj1855 (160) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2008
This is a great beer. Pours a cloudy brown color with very little head. Very pleasant sweet aroma. Nicely balanced flavors of dark fruit, caramel, chocolate and spices. Alcohol is hidden very well.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2008
0.33 l bottle, vintage 2006. Dark reddish brown color with big creamy head. Sweetish, warming, chocolatey and raisiny aroma with black currant, anis and a hint of solvent. Sweet and warming flavor with plenty of dark fruits and chocolate. Licorice and coffee in the finish. Soft palate. Very tasty, nice smooth dark malt and fruit character. I would like to have more belgian fermentation flavors though.

elihapa (1552) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - NOV 20, 2008
2006 bottle, from Forest City in CT. Pours brown with a large, creamy, tan head. Aroma of fresh dates, chocolate, rum cake, and red cherries. Palate is pleasantly prickly, with full-bodied mouthfeel. Flavor of rich, chocolaty fruit and malt which is absolutely delicious. I also detect some well-blended spicy, woody notes that just add to the beauty of this beer. Pannepot is one of those rare brews that every beer taster aspires to have one day, then upon trying, finds it to be even better than anticipated. What else . . . oh, the finish is mildy sweet, with a hint of warming alcohol (which was otherwise undetectable throughout). As noted, this was a 2006 bottle, so perhaps the age contributed to Pannepots beauty, but Ive just never had a beer so complex, smooth, and tasty at the same time. Just name a price for this and Im there . . .

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2008
330ml Bottle: Sour aroma makes my mouth water. Smells of sour fruit and some malts. Poured dark brown with a hint of purple in color and a small beige head that lasted throughout. Opaque. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium sour. Tastes of alcohol, dark ripe fruits, malts, light chocolate, malts, raisins, motor oil, and spices. Light to medium body. Thin, dry, chalky texture. Lively carbonation. Sour, chocolate and malt finish is dry.

BigBang (299) - Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Pours brown with tan head. High carbonation and lacing. Aroma is spice. Flabor is sweet fruit (raisins) and spices. Too sweet for my taste and not a big fan of raisins.
